i have a cold. my eyes are crusty when i wake up and my hair is matted in a nest above my head. i don’t want to get out of bed to fight my closet and beg my mascara to make my face look alive. sometimes you feel defeated even before the alarm goes off. but when you feel like you have already lost remember this truth. you are a whole lot of lovely. even when you have a cold, even when you cannot find anything to wear, even when you forget to put on your make-up. beauty is a whole lot deeper than all those things. loveliness is an attitude, a heart, and a way of life.
